If Mr. Woodcock worked for the MoD (and I have no reason to doubt it) he would be aware there are very good reasons for Ms. Clinton to not trust our own security apparatus. Doesn't make what she did OK, but it helps understand why she did it.
Further, I cannot imagine a world where Mr. Trump would do better.

Have eaten there several times. It's definitely a place you can count on for a great dining experience. And the cooking classes are highly recommended!
Well done, Ms. Waheed!

Here's a link to HVCC's list of programs since it appears you didn't look.
There's a large number of "vocational" programs. Since you claim to have graduated from there (I was a student there as well) you know that the college environment teaches more than whatever your focus is on, and you generally leave a more mature human. The college environment is one to aspire to and secondary schools should be biased to that. Secondary schools also have the BOCES program which is an excellent program for non-college bound students and I haven't heard they're underfunded or staffed, although I haven't had any connection with secondary schools for a long time.
So I just don't get what the right is whining about wrt "college" other than more general hate toward "libruls".

cracker, before you or Moser go spouting your half-baked opinions you should take a quick look at the programs at HVCC and SCCC. Last I heard they counted as a colleges. Why is the Right so opposed to an education?

So you've basically got nuthin' (except a lot of hate), because that's not going to win over the US electorate. Nice choice.

Please. Don't go Dad. You'll be missed.
But before you go, how about listing all the good things Mr. Trump has brought to the process that you feel is overlooked, that you feel make him better qualified to be President than Ms. Clinton. And please don't just list why you hate Ms. Clinton and the Democrats.

Smarter traffic control would go a long way toward better quality of life.

You're either with us or against us, right cracker?
Isn't that attitude a big part of the problem though?

Sadly they seem keen to keep it in that gray area between ethical and illegal.
Well played.

And what about all those shanties and shacks down by the river in that area called the "Stockade"? They're all quaint and stuff, lots of cool "history" there, but when it comes down to it, are they really worth saving? Let's not let emotions get the best of us. Let the engineers decide what's best. Maybe it'd be better just to let them go away by attrition and put the pictures in a safe place for our children. Think of the revenue Schenectady's missing out on.
Btw, If/when the Nicholaus building comes down, do you think anyone will be held accountable for the ham-handed way parts of Schenectady's history are being handled? That's if Schenectady finds any more value in its history than just old photos.
